hi, i'm holly, and i'm a writer.
A "writer" as in, I've known that's what I wanted to be since the first grade, even though my teacher caught me in a lie when I said I wanted to be a marine biologist — she told me she enjoyed my stories and hey did I know what a "writer" did?
A "writer" as in, proud alumna of the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism, where I reigned as boss lady/editor-in-chief of Speakeasy magazine and geeked out over pop culture on the reg. I came out of Athens with a bachelors of science in Magazine Journalism and a minor in English, Anthropology and Jell-O shots.
A "writer" as in, the one-time advice columnist at BOP & Tiger Beat, and yes, it was as amazing as that sounds.
A "writer" as in, a product expert at zulily, where I used words to sell things like SPANX and sports bras and stilettos to "Mom,' and then created a new training program so that our writers and merchandising team could work better together.
A "writer" as in, a word witch for Abercrombie & Fitch and abercrombie kids, where I made magic with omni-channel, 360-degree marketing for 5 years.
A "writer" as in the copy queen at Thirty-One, where I am leading a team through the land of rebranding, and rebuilding the entire voice and tone one em-dash at a time—it's gonna be fun.
A "writer" as in, I promise I'm still working on that novel during my free (?!) time.
A "writer" as in, I literally do not know how to be anything else.
